"Follow your passion"
I’m an IFMGA (International Federation of Mountain Guide Associations) mountain guide and the Founder of the mountain guiding company Raus und Rauf. Born in Finland, I fell in love with the mountains the Alps and got my guiding certificate in Argentina. I am mostly moving in the mountains on skis all the way from the Arctic to the Patagonian Andes.
Few words that define you as an athlete:
Determined, passionate, curious

Few words that define you as a person :
I am kind of boring guy. Just kidding!

What are your passions besides skiing / climbing / mountaineering / trail running ?
Latin music, good food...

Your best and worst memory in the mountains :
I think it is useless to put the moment in rated line. There are many moments that are in way the best moment or moments that are milestones for you to become what you are, but I do not see the reason to try to find out the superlative.

Why do you feel part of the Millet family ?
The way my life is, it needs strong partners. Millet is committed to go further to get more to for their customers.

What does that mean about you, Rise Up ?
I think that way we share the same passion to go always further to Rise up and therefore I feel that Millet is my brand of choice.

Why do you advise people to go out in the mountains to do outdoor activities ?
Mountain activities provide a unique way to feel alive in the modern world.
Achievements & future projects
Rather than pointing out a list of first ascents and descents, I prefer to say that the biggest achievement for me is that I had in my life I gave to me the opportunity to keep searching new possibilities to do mountain sport in places that are precious like Patagonia or North Scandinavia; open the world of adventure to my clients as a guide and tour operator. My future goal is to keep on be curious and keep on searching and not to stay at the achieved point.
